Trip to the North Fork: 6-8-19

About 15 Kachemak Bay Birders enjoyed a great walk along the North Fork Road early this morning. Many of us who car pooled from Islands and Ocean stood and talked in the warm sunshine for a while, but as we got up to the North Fork, we found ourselves in fog. Much chillier and the light wasn't too g...

Dippers under the North Fork Bridge

These photos were taken by Tim Quinn on 4-14-19 at the bridge over the North Fork, about two miles in from the highway. This is the area we try to have a birding trip each June to see the warblers and (many) other species found in this area. We almost always see dippers there, nesting, singing and n...

Trip to the Spit: 3-16-19

GCRF2Tim.jpg Kachemak Bay Birders had a bit 'o the luck of the Irish today, one day early. With 100% precipitation predicted, hardly any rain fell upon them as they were birding out on the Spit. (The rest of the day it poured!) Also the luck of finding 27 species. Seemed like spring with Song Sparr...

Between 8:30 and 10:30 pm, Jason captured in his net, banded, took measurements, weighed, and then freed 3 Northern Saw-w...
